A Recent Review of this tour

Valentina was extremely informative, not just about the Valley of the Temples, but about Sicily, answering all of our questions. She also took into consideration that we are older travellers and organised breaks and short stints on the mini-bus. Well-informed, articulate and looked after us extremely well. A great day seeing Sicilian landscape, as well as the temples.
